What We’re Reading 04/22/16

“What We’re Reading” is where we share articles and posts that have impacted our contributors in one way or another.  If you’ve read a great article that is worth sharing, send it over to Aaron.

Tulsa

Costco has opened in south Tulsa. Never been? This Tulsa World article will give you some insight into what Costco is all about.

How are schools navigating the massive budget cuts to education? TPS is changing school times and Jenks is asking for parental support.

Life

This article has resonated with some of our moms who have kids between newborn and age eight. It’s a hard stage of life, but a beautiful one.

Be sure to read this article about what parents’ addiction to cell phone does to their children. Here’s one little snippet, “In research for her book, Steiner-Adair interviewed 1,000 children between the ages of 4 and 18, asking them about their parents’ use of mobile devices. The language that came up over and over and over again, she says, was “sad, mad, angry and lonely.” One 4-year-old called his dad’s smartphone a “stupid phone.” Others recalled joyfully throwing their parent’s phone into the toilet, putting it in the oven or hiding it.”

The secret shame of living paycheck to paycheck. There is another way, as one of our contributors previously shared.

Why do we live paycheck to paycheck? This person argues it’s because “we want to look adequate.”

Faith

We appreciate this short article with insight from N.T. Wright about the fruit of the Spirit and how they manifest in our lives.
